turbogrill Posted June 24, 2019 Report Share Posted June 24, 2019 (edited) Hi, Hard to ignore the SBC engine for a possible future swap, it's heavy and old school but so cheap and kits are available. The SBC 305 TBI engine found in everything (trucks, camaros, etc) has an astonishing power output of 170 hp at the crank. SBC community says throw the engine away or get better head, cam and intake. However that is too many points and 180hp is about the limit before swap points starts to increase too much. I would think that it would be possible to extract a little more than 34 hp/l out of these engines with 0pts modifiers. Anyone has any experience doing this? These seems to be common 0pts mods: - Exhaust, the 170hp was with restrictive exhaust - TBI porting (dremel in garage) - Megasquirt - Air intake Would >200hp crank be possible with the above mods? The power curve is very interesting on these engines, it's flat and starts early. Edited June 24, 2019 by turbogrill typo Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
